Shipping a container has been a complex process for many years. Manual and in-efficient, the buying and booking process has been often full of surprises. With the launch of Maersk Spot, Maersk aims to introduce a truly online product that can break the cycle of overbookings and offer a much simpler way to ship a container with load guarantee.
A new carbon neutral product – the first of its kind in the industry - is being piloted with select Maersk customers who are highly engaged in sustainable solutions for their supply chain. H&M Group is the first company to trial it as part of the shift towards carbon-neutral transportation.
ZIM Integrated Shipping Services has announced an order of 500 Star Cool Integrated Reefers from Maersk Container Industry. With 300,000 units in operation globally, the reefer containers have a great track record.
